12m.

Rockfax Description
12m. The best route hereabouts. The left-hand side of the face is climbed starting up a short crack and tending slightly left on holds that are mostly disappointing. Finish up the flake in the left arete. Escape from the top is rather problematical. © Rockfax

βeta: Im not so sure Dave. I dont think there are 4c moves its just the intimidating position. Certainly top end VS but never mid grade HVS (just think of some of the HVS slabs). Getting off needs ropework trickery or much better technical skills.

βeta: OK, I admit it. I think we were mean not to up-grade this. Definitely harder than Condor Slab, of similar ilk.
